one republican made a special plea to disi will luged democrats last night, trying to convince them that being an obama supporter four years ago doesn’t mean you have to be one now. former congressman
knows what he’s talking about. he seconded the
nomination at the
ladies and gentlemen
, this is the cause for which we stand. an
who will lead and inspire the
now, some of you may know, the last time i spoke at a convention, it turned out i was in the wrong place. may it be said, of this time in our history,
, lesson learned.
, mistake corrected.
. little disconcerting that a man who was one of the seconders for the president’s nomination goes and gives a — at least cable
speech, making the case against him.
well, i think last night’s speech by archer
was more about archer
or about this country. he clearly has some future political ambitions and he has calculated this to give him a better shot at being re-elected. so i’ll just leave it at that.
there was something that caught me last night, monday night. you had the president’s twitter feed, and it’s a campaign twitter feet, and i understand it’s not from the president himself. he said, quote, crazy as it sounds, the fight to limit or even ban
is a key issue in the upcoming
i did a poll. nbc ”
wall street journal
” poll and i asked the top issues. you’re going to tell me that
is going to come up to more than 1%?
no, i think that if you ask the question, do women care about
and do they want people like
interfering with their ability to get
and making their
decisions for them, i’m pretty sure it would sky rocket to number one. it is an important issue with women. they don’t want people in washington interfering with it. they don’t want
interfering with it. so i think that that’s a discussion that’s being had all over the country.
what do you say if the president says you know what, you guys are trying to talk about any issue that’s not the economy.
we’re happy to talk about the economy. we’re not the ones that put a bill on the
floor of the house
of representatives to take the decision-making away from women. they did.
supports it. so they put this topic into the discussion. president wants to ensure women have access to
. that’s an important issue. we’re happy to talk about that. we’re happy to talk about the economy. i mean, the one thing that you didn’t hear last night from any of these speakers, and it will be interesting to see if we hear it tonight, is about the republican platform. they apparently had it in the same vault that they had
‘s taxes in. you know, and that bans contraception, the ability for women to get contraception. it bans abortion in all circumstances, even in the cases of rape.
you expect democrats to be 100% behind everything in the democratic platform?
i think the platform that we’ll put forward next week will represent where the president is, and where he wants to take the country.
are there going to be democrats that — are you going to welcome democrats who disagree with it, because there’s a lot of republicans that disagree –
absolutely. but the president agrees with it. that’s the point. the president is running for re-election.
is running for president.
‘s people were sitting in the room when the platform was being written. it was written at the direction of
‘s staff. they didn’t speak up to put a rape exception in the
human life amendment
. they didn’t speak up to access to contraception. it’s a representation of where the president wants to take the country and where
wants to take the country.
do you believe
is a good surrogate for her husband?
i do. i think it was clear last night she loves and respects her husband and we respect that. wives play an important role or spouses play an important role in these elections. they give a lens into what motivates people.
it was a good speech?
it was a good speech. my take-away is she really loves her husband.
, you guys are doing a press conference against
. is that your focus today?
it’s interesting that
said last night that our leaders need to speak the hard truth. and what i think we’ll hear tonight won’t be the hard truth. i don’t think
is going to walk through the sbablt of his medicare plan on seniors. he’s not going to walk through the impact of his budget plan on kids getting kicked out of head start. and he’s not going to talk about his plan to reduce the deficit because it’s not a balanced plan. he asked everybody to sacrifice except for those at the top.
, enjoy the humidity.
